8-4 in rounds: Peñalosa believes Ancajas won fight vs Santiago

Filipino boxing champion Jerwin Ancajas won four more rounds than Mexican challenger Alejandro Santiago instead of settling for a split draw. That's how Gerry Pealosa, a former two-division titleholder, would've scored the fight. "Jerwin won that fight," Pealosa told INQUIRER.net in Filipino on Saturday. "I had Jerwin taking eight rounds to four so it should be 116-112." One judge scored it 116-112 for Ancajas but the others saw it differently, 118-111 for Santiago and 114-114. But that's not to take anything away from Santiago, whom Pealosa said surprised him after initially thinking that the bout would be just a walk in the park for Ancajas.

Jerwin Ancajas retains IBF title after Split Draw

Filipino IBF Super Flyweight World Champion Jerwin "Pretty Boy" Ancajas holds on to his title after figuring in a Split Draw against Mexican Alejandro Santiago Barrios at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Friday evening (Saturday morning, Manila time).  A back-forth-battle throughout the course of twelve rounds, the usually-methodic Ancajas found it difficult to impose his will against the shifty Barrios.  The smaller challenger brought the fight to the defending champion, challenging Ancajas more than anyone has during the Pinoy's title reign.  At the end of the action-packed affair, one judge saw it in 116-112 in favor of the champion, while another saw it 118-110 in favor of the challenger.  The third judge scored it a 114-114 draw.  This is the second Filipino fighter to battle to a draw in the last month, with Donnie Nietes and Aston Palicte battling to a Split Draw in their WBO Super Flyweight title contest back in early September.  Earlier in the card, former world title challenge Genesis Servania made quick work of Mexican opponent Carlos Carlson via third round KO. .....»»

Jerwin Ancajas keeps IBF title after split draw

Filipino boxing star Jerwin Ancajas settled for a split draw against Alejandro Santiago of Mexico Saturday (Manila time) at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Ancajas retained his IBF super flyweight belt in his sixth title defense since winning the crown following a unanimous decision victory over McJoe Arroyo of Puerto Rico two years ago. One judge had it 116-112 for Ancajas while the other scored it 118-111 for Santiago and the third saw it dead even at 114. The 26-year-old Ancajas was the much taller fighter but Santiago proved to be a tough nut to crack. Santiago was feisty and unfazed as he willingly exchanged with Ancajas, who picked it up in the latter part of t...Keep on reading: Jerwin Ancajas keeps IBF title after split draw.....»»
